Today's Thrift Score


This is such a sweet find, a wallpocket in the shape of a coffeepot, with little cherries and leaves on it. Had a couple of nicks in it, but a quick dot of magic marker and voila! you can't even see them now. This little gem was $1 at a yard sale.


Here's another one to add to my S & P collection, it is in the shape of a mixer, and the salt and pepper shakers are the tips of the beaters. I have the box it came in too, but for some dumb reason I forget to include it in the pic...duh......LOL...I think my brain is dead from the heat....


This thing is huge!!!! It is a heavy ceramic ashtray with a big ol' Boxer ?? dog sitting atop it. I guess it is over a foot wide, and is quite heavy. (If the hubby gets out of line, I'll just whop him on the head with it, in case the frying pan is not handy *giggle*) Just kidding :) It cost all of $1.50 at a yard sale.


These little fellas just made my day! In case you didn't know, I am ga-ga over bird related items - (since I am owned by 3 of the most lovable, mischievious, noisy, talkative, feathery, and did I say talkative, bundles of joy on this earth :) These are darling little vintage bird toys, they were to sit on the perch in the bird cage for the bird to amuse himself with. They are in perfect condition, and were only 10 cents for both!!!

Will see you tomorrow with more vintage stuff!

oh I love everything you found, the ducks are hard to find here but when vintage ones do come up they usually go for a few hundred dollars - unbelievable!

How do you find all this cool stuff? I love everything! The dog could be a boxer. Almost looks like a great dane too.
